Brazil Manager Falls Over In Hilarious Last Minute Goal Celebrations

Brazil Manager Falls Over In Hilarious Last Minute Goal Celebrations

Marcelo's deep cross was kept alive by Roberto Firmino and a loose touch by Jesus dribbled perfectly into Coutinho's path. Both play on Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET, but only Brazil can get out of the group, not Costa Rica.

If one goal wasn't enough to seal the win, Neymar and co toyed around with the Central American side and scored another in the 96th minute.

Brazil went into the break with the boos and whistles of their fans ringing in their ears but emerged with a renewed sense of objective, with Jesus heading against the bar four minutes after the restart and Coutinho sending the follow-up effort narrowly wide.

The former Barcelona star went down softly under the challenge of Giancarlo Gonzalez, with referee Bjorn Kuipers initially pointing to the spot.

However, Coutinho's 91st-minute strike rescued the Selacao an important victory which puts them top of the group, and Neymar soon struck to consign Costa Rica to elimination.

Neymar curled around the right-hand post from 18 yards after the defence opened up for him in the 72nd minute, before the officials arrived at the correct decision via VAR to deny him a penalty.

And Neymar was on hand to tap home Douglas Costa's delicate chipped cross even deeper into stoppage time to wrap up three points that had appeared like slipping through Brazilian fingers.

The world's most expensive player was making just his fourth appearance after breaking a bone in his foot in February and was the centre of attention for much of the match.

Do you think Gisele gets more excited for New England Patriots wins or Brazil World Cup victories?

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar completed the full 90 minutes in Brazil's 1-1 draw with Switzerland in their Group E opener, but limped out of training during the week with an ankle injury.

"It's not normal to cry in the second game of a World Cup", Brazil's biggest newspaper, O Globo, said.

In Brazil's opening 1-1 draw against Switzerland, Neymar had been fouled 10 times, sometimes harshly. Neymar then angrily punched the ball a short time later as Costa Rica's players tried to waste time.

Neymar burst into tears at the end of the game, drawing some concern about the emotional state of the team as they set off on another high-pressure pursuit of a sixth World Cup triumph.
